To upgrade, or not to upgrade, that is the question.
I say if you have a crummy secondary PC that you don't do much with + you meet the W10 system requirements - in which for me, basically my crummy Win 8.1 laptop fits the bill here - I'd say to "go for it." You could then use that as your W10 test-bed PC. No reason not to, in that case.
I wasn't fond of Win 8.1 on my laptop in the first place, but it was a bit more tolerable w/ StartMenu8 - W10 upgrade is certainly just another reason for me to get away from Win 8.1. Now this crummy laptop certainly boots, loads, and runs much better + faster with W10. It was a pretty painless upgrade - just time-consuming, more so than anything. You might wanna go watch some TV shows, movies, or do something else - while you do the W10 download and when you do the install. Just peak in now and then and see if you need to interject and do something (in which, you will). This PC will likely be my W10 test-bed + W10-Store deal-getting PC, for now.
Just, you know - make sure you turn off the telemetry garbage when asked upon installing and also after the install via the Privacy settings and read-up on any other ways if you're worried about the W10 telemetry stuff. A simple Google search should help you find more info on how to turn most of this crap off.
If you want to move your main PC to W10 - that's really something for you to decide. Weigh the pro's and con's. I don't know if you want to back-up your stuff first (probably do); got a lot of games installed + game saves to back-up; or you have games you don't think will work on W10; or what - but it's your call really there. If you probably ain't done much yet w/ your main rig, might be a lot easier decide on moving to W10. Just, you know - you have until a year from W10's original release to do the free upgrade.
